Notes

-d1t01 (ROR); Left channel problems from 4:54-6:41, I corrected it by patching in the right channel
-d1t07 (Loser); Diginoise @ :05
-d2t03 (Playin'); Left channel d/o (~1/10 sec, but it created an audible 'pop') @ 13:10:54, I corrected it by patching in the right channel
-d3t04 (Bobby McGee); Muffled for 1 second @ 1:52
-d3t06 (GDTRFB); Static for 2 seconds @ 8:30
-d3t07 (JBG); Minor static @ 1:12

-Deadlists and Setlist Program both show El Paso, China>Rider, Playin' to end the first set, and Promised Land to start the second. I wasn't there :O), but I have listened to this recording closely for splices etc, and cannot find any. Believe it if you need it...!

I used CD Wave and Shntool to retrack, and verify sb's, and CE2K for all editing.

Ignore the first review. Lame first set list??? This set has almost everything, what's the problem- no BT Wind? There is just no pleasing some people. As travis points out- there is a killer Playin to cap the set off, so again, what is the first reviewer talking about. I do not mean to generalize, but the phish in the name tells me enough. There are two worlds GD and Ph. For some the intertwine. That fist reviewer was not of our world.

The show is hot from songlist, performance, and energy perspectives. Sound quality is the only thing to complain about, but that is no one's fault. I wish i has a killer crisp copy to listen to, but will be happy with what I have. This could have turned out to be one of those lost 73s, but thankfully we have a nice listenable copy with enough audience to make it feel you are standing right next to them.

Not a show for audiophiles, but definitely one for for fans of 72-73.

Subject: Did you ever actually listen?
First, no soundboard of this show - Dick Latvalla told me it was one of several key '73 shows that didn't survive in the vault. I was attended this one AND 8/1 the next night - 7/31 is THE show - as good as it gets. First, how can you critisize the 1st set list for no jam when you didnt even listen to the Playin' that ends the set which is 30 min and A+++? Seriously one of the two or 3 best Playins I've ever heard. Also, even though there's no 2nd set mammoth jam, EVERY single tune in the set is A-list quality performance (that goes for the 1st set as well)and Garcia is off the wall animatedBEST BR, LL, BP, etc...
8/1 '73 gets more attn because it contains a DS/EP (which is just pretty good) and the SB recording sounds great, but 7/31/73 is one of the best Dead shows ever.
Reviewer: gphishmon - - August 5, 2008
Subject: Excellent audience, about 1 CD of great stuff
This is a rather lame setlist for 73 - no secondary jams in the first set (Half-Step, Sunshine, Birdsong), unless you count TLEO. Still, there's about 1 CD, maybe a little more, of very hot music. To be honest, I haven't listened to the Playin' yet, but 20+ min. of 73 Playin' can't be wrong. The China Cat builds up the tension before finally releasing it in that characteristic jam of 72 Dark Stars and 73-74 China>Riders (I don't know what it's called, but I call it the "Joy" jam).

The most noteworthy aspect of this recording is how crispy it is for a 73 Aud. Credit the incipient Wall of Sound. I can't give it 5 stars, though, due to the somewhat lacking setlist, including the lack of a "big" second set jam.
